Download Erkenntnis und Dialektik: Zur Einführung in eine Philosophie by Bruno Liebrucks PDF

By Bruno Liebrucks

Das Verhaltnis von Sprache und Bewusstsein wird als das Verhaltnis der Verhaltnisse angesehen. Das erste Verhaltnis fungiert nicht tech nisch-praktisch oder mathematisch, nicht als Prinzip von Verhalt nissen. Es wird als Bedingung der Moglichkeit und Wirklichkeit eines logischen Ganges von der Substanz iiber die Stadien der Funktion, Reflexion bis zum Begriff angesehen. Der Funktionsbegriff misplaced nicht den Substanzbegriff ab, wie noch bei Ernst Cassirer. Substanz, Funk tion und Reflexion sind als Momente innerhalb des logischen Begriffs zu denken. Die Frage nach dem Sein tritt nicht in den Vordergrund, obwohl sie das potenzierte Verhaltnis als Frage streift. Entgegen standlichung und Vergegenstandlichung treten innerhalb der Erkennt nis mit dem gleichen Anspruch auf. Die mich seit I949 beschaftigende Frage nach einer Obersetzung von Hegels Philosophie des Absoluten in die ihr eigene Dialektik warfare immer zugleich an die einzelnen Disziplinen der Philosophie gerichtet. Bald wurde klar, dass das zu allen Zeiten geiibte Umschreiben bestimmter philosophischer Disziplinen im Zeitalter des Nihilismus, das das Zeit adjust der absoluten Herrschaft der exakten Wissenschaften ist, nur noch mit vorgespielter N aivitat vorgenommen werden konnte. Es dient weder der Stunde noch entspricht es ihrer now not. Philosophische Distanz ist heute im Anblick der Wissenschaften schwer durchzuhal ten. Sie scheint nicht in erster Linie durch Wissenschaftstheorien er reich bar, obwohl diese zur erwiinschten Klarung von Satzen beitragen und deshalb bei dem Versuch der Gewinnung einer Logik von der Sprache her herangezogen werden miissen. Die Stichworter "Logik von der Sprache her" und "Logik unter Hintergehung der Sprache" seien als Hinweise genannt.
